Game 1 hero Go deflects credit to Ravena, Eagles

Holding a precarious 73-70 lead against La Salle in the waning seconds of Game 1 of the UAAP Season 80 men’s basketball Finals,  Ateneo knew it needed one last bucket to put the result beyond doubt.

Luckily for the Blue Eagles, Thirdy Ravena found an open Isaac Go down low for the undergoal stab plus the foul with 10.4 seconds remaining. Go completing the three-point play and Ateneo held on for a 76-70 win.

The blue gallery was electric but somehow, the 6-foot-7 big man remained stoic as if nothing happened.

“It’s exciting, yes, but the reason that I was not able to celebrate was that first, the game was not finished yet. It was not a buzzer beater,” Go said.

“Second, it was Thirdy who found me open, so I have to give credit to Thirdy. Third, at the end of the day, it was a two points for Ateneo. I don’t look at it as a two points for me, but I look at it as a whole, that Ateneo got the two points.”
